removing requirement for setting chef server url #73

This change removes the requirement for setting the ['audit']['server'] attribute when collector is set to chef-server. If server is not set, then the Chef Server url will be determined by what's in the client.rb file. This allows for an easier Global Chef architecture where there are regional Chef Servers - the audit cookbook can just pick up the server url from it’s client config without having to take into account regional attribute overrides.

Verification via pry when ['audit']['server'] is not set:
